9780820451060: The Legal Studies Reader: A Conversation & Readings about Law (Teaching Texts in Law and Politics)

The Legal Studies Reader is an innovative, clearly focused contribution to the growing literature in the new area of legal studies. Emphasizing the large issues that animate current debates over legal rules and principles and the proper roles of lawyers and judges, this is a book of conversations by the editors and some of the major figures of modern legal thought. Ronald Dworkin, John Finnis, Lon Fuller, H.L.A. Hart, Marc Galanter and others appear here in the seminal essays that have influenced generations of students of the law.
Beginning with a series of exchanges aimed at highlighting differences and leading the student into the essays in the second part, the editors debate law and violence, law and objectivity, law and society, and law and reason. The essays that follow develop these themes in depth, often with explicit reference to one another. Ranging from Legal Realism to the «Berkeley Perspective» to Critical Race Theory and Legal Feminism, The Legal Studies Reader charts the main theoretical positions that still dominate our thinking about law. Anyone interested in how law affects the pursuit of a fully developed, truly human life should read this book.

Review:

«This book is a record and roadmap of how two dedicated teachers have met the daunting challenge of presenting a basic, liberal arts course on law. One of the best ways to teach such courses to show the students why the instructors have chosen to construct them as they have. By using this method Wright and Cuzzo provide us with an outstanding teaching tool.» (Martin Shapiro, James W. and Isabel Coffroth Professor of Law at Boalt Hall (School of Law), UC, Berkeley)
«I have read the ‘Legal Studies Reader’ with much appreciation. It features a substantial dialogue which skillfully presents some of the perennial issues in the ways we think about jurisprudence and society. I believe the book will be widely recognized as an important contribution to teaching and reflection about legal studies.» (Philip Selznick, Professor Emeritus of Law and Sociology, University of California, Berkeley)
